The difference between Danny Murphy, Ruud Gullit and the likes of us on Owlstalk is that we're not paid money to offer a supposedly expert opinion on football related matters whereas they are.
They were clearly uninformed on an issue that had been in the public domain and could have been checked out by even the briefest of conversations with anyone remotely connected to Wednesday. They appeared all too eager to criticise Steve Bruce and clearly had no knowledge of the circumstances that led to his break from football.
Gullit was perhaps the most guilty with his 'would he have done it to Man Utd?' jibe when Alex Scott was trying to explain Bruce's decision (which might have stopped them both from putting their foot in it any further) but he just shouted her down. That was incredibly ignorant of Gullit and must have been incredibly hurtful to Bruce as it called into question both his professionalism and his personal integrity over such an emotional issue. To his great credit Bruce has not reacted in kind by attacking his attackers, nor by playing the victim.
Should Murphy and/or Gullit lose their jobs? That's up to their employers. Are there better informed and more insightful 'experts' available? You would very much hope so.
